Tehillim (Psalms) 97
1יהוה shall reign. The earth rejoices. Many isles are glad!
2Clouds and darkness all around Him, Righteousness and right-ruling are the foundation of His throne.
3Fire goes before Him, And burns up His adversaries round about.
4His lightnings shall light the world, The earth shall see and tremble.
5The mountains shall melt like wax before the face of יהוה, Before the face of the Master of all the earth.
6The heavens shall declare His righteousness, And all the peoples shall see His esteem.
7All are put to shame who serve carved images, Those boasting of matters of naught. Bow yourselves to Him, all you mighty ones.
8Tsiyon shall hear and be glad, And the daughters of Yehuḏah rejoice Because of Your right-rulings, O יהוה.
9For You, יהוה, are the Most High over all the earth, You shall be greatly exalted, over all mighty ones.
10You who love יהוה, hate evil! He guards the lives of His lovingly-committed ones, He delivers them out of the hand of the wrong.
11Light is sown for the righteous, And gladness for the upright in heart.
12Rejoice in יהוה, you righteous, And give thanks at the remembrance of His Set-apartness.
